Danny Quirin

   

Danny and his wife Debbie both grew up in northern Virginia where they met in the youth choir at church while in high school.

Their son Scott and his wife Lindsay live in Salem and have three children, son Derrick and his wife Bekah live in Salem and have two children while their son Ben and his wife Abby reside in Connecticut and have one child.

  

Life on journey with Jesus is a thrill ride in and of itself so why not take in and enjoy God’s beautiful creation however possible? Danny and his family enjoy being outdoors whether it is snow or water skiing, hiking, camping, spending time at the lake, grilling out and time together with family is his favorite thing to do. He’s been known to have been seen dangling from a bungee cord or running river rapids and you’ll probably see him enjoying the area's curvy roads on his motorcycle.

Joel grew up the with both parents serving in ministry. As a result of being entrenched in ministry, Joel felt a sense of calling to ministry. This sense only grew when he attended Covenant College (a small Christian College on Lookout Mountain, GA). Since Joel’s completion of college, he has worked in the golf industry, interned at two churches, and worked foster care at Hopetree Family Services.

Joel and His wife, Elizabeth, met while Elizabeth was in her senior year at Hollins University through a local church ministry. After dating for a few years, they were married in August of 2019.  Both Joel and Elizabeth love hiking, the outdoors, golf, and of course Auburn football (War Eagle). Currently, Joel is continuing his studies at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary where he is studying Pastoral Counseling.

Peggy Arbogast

  

Peggy is a native of Botetourt County and has been a part of the Mill Creek family since 2005. In that time, she has worked with all ages of children from birth through High School. She quickly discovered that ministering to the younger children, especially two years and up is where her heart is. She is also passionate about mission work and has served with the various mission teams at Mill Creek over the years. Her passion is working with Preescolar Cristiano Brisas del Este in the Dominican Republic, and she currently serves on that team. This is a Christian based preschool that Mill Creek has partnered with since 2004.

Peggy and her husband, Gino, live in Buchanan with their two very spoiled miniature daschunds.  They both enjoy playing golf and being outdoors in God’s beautiful creation.
